Baptism was practised and taught in the Bible, but what was it? How was it carried out? Who did it involve? Why did it take place? What was the purpose? The answers to these and other questions are explained in these pages. The ‘Ten Considerations’ provided in Have you gone down in the 8:36? are written to help us understand this important subject. Read this booklet, and then ask yourself “What doth hinder me to be baptized?” (Acts 8.36).
